Custom Post Types in Wordpress

I am trying to make a Zap where a new Youtube video creates a post on a wordpress website.  The post is a custom post type called “Shows”. But the Wordpress App doesn’t give the custom post type as an option. Is there a way to allow this?

 

I have been working through this:

but it requires the WP Plugin Oauth 2.0 Server which is $149 - which I would rather not spend at the moment.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Found part of the issue. My host wasn’t allowing Zapier to connect:

Looks like the easiest way to deal with custom fields and taxonomies is going to be WP Webhooks plugin
